    Story
    (8)

    Over 13 days, as various decisions are second-guessed and sometimes regretted, both passengers and guides find that sometimes the most daunting adventures on a Colorado River trip have nothing to do with white-water rapids, and everything to do with reconfiguring the rocky canyons of the heart.

    "Could have been a good story"
    Overall

    This was so promising, and I think the story could have been good if I had read the book. The narrator has a very stiff, official, academic type voice, and the story is about nature and people, and it just didn't fit. When he is speaking the characters' voices, it's just not believable at all. I was very distracted by it.

  • When You Are Engulfed in Flames

    Story
    (1473)

    Once again, David Sedaris brings together a collection of essays so uproariously funny and profoundly moving that his legions of fans will fall for him all over again. He tests the limits of love when Hugh lances a boil from his backside, and pushes the boundaries of laziness when, finding the water shut off in his house in Normandy, he looks to the water in a vase of fresh cut flowers to fill the coffee machine.

    "Funniest car rides ever"
    Overall

    This had me laughing in traffic, out loud, by myself. It made my commute to work so enjoyable. I would press play every time I got in the car, even for just a quick ride down the street. This is his funniest book by far.
